What is the social value of this project? Edit

As part of our Government’s commitment to empowering individuals and communities to better address social challenges, Economic Action Plan 2012 announced we would explore social finance opportunities.

Social finance has enormous potential for unlocking new sources of capital and new ways of thinking to improve social and economic outcomes for Canadians.

Our work to date has been focused on forging new partnerships with not-for-profits, charities, businesses, and foundations to examine the barriers to social innovation and how we can better enable social entrepreneurs.
Now, by launching this Call for Concepts for Social Finance, I am inviting organizations and individuals from across the country to help our Government take the next step by bringing their best ideas forward. Whether they are high level concepts or detailed proposals, the goal is to help identify future partners and inform how we can shape our existing programs to better support social innovation.

Our Government can’t achieve different – and better – outcomes for Canadian taxpayers if we don’t change how we do things.

I am excited about continuing to build on the momentum around social finance and I hope that together, we will identify new ways of making Canada and our communities even stronger.
The Hon. Diane Finley, P.C., M.P.

Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development
